Leadenhall Market - Beer, Bread and Beans!

Wednesdays in May and June at 6:30pm

Spring is here and the lighter evenings provide the perfect excuse to explore the 2000 years of history at Leadenhall, its surroundings and their gastronomic legacy.

As well as the stories of beer, bread and beans these tours include tales of plucky geese, food most fowl, fishing insights, fast food and other market staples.

The crucial question 'who ate all the pies?' may also be answered in and around this ancient market site, so please join us on this special tour

This is a limited-edition tour with few dates and limited tickets which must be booked in advance. Thanks to financial support from Leadenhall Market, tickets are heavily subsidised.

We try to make our walks as inclusive and accessible as possible but please note there are cobbles and a few kerbs.

If you have a support dog who assists you they are welcome to come, but unfortunately we cannot accommodate any non-support animals.

We offer daily, weekly and monthly walks around the City of London 

Our daily walks run from the City Information Centre, just south of St Paul's. You need to book via Eventbrite to secure you place. Note: the cut-off time for booking our daily walks is 21:00hrs the night before. If we don't have any bookings then the walk will not take place. Read our policy on Refunds.

Our weekly walks have individual booking pages and earlier cut-off times, please see the individual listing.
